    Phoenix Sister Cities has begun recruiting high school sophomores and juniors for the prestigious Youth Ambassador Exchange Program (YAEP). The YAEP is wonderful opportunity for city of Phoenix youth to experience the culture of another country and see it through the eyes of teenagers that live in that country. It is a cultural exchange that takes place in the summer of 2013 where the chosen youth ambassadors travel for about three weeks to another country and stay with a family that lives in one of our 9 sister cities around the world.  Then they reciprocate and home host the teenager they stayed with for an additional three weeks back here in Phoenix at the end of the summer. More information and applications are available on their website at www.phoenixsistercities.com  

    For additional information contact Misty Cisneros-Contreras at 480-635-6861.
